Hello and hope you are doing well.
Interstitial markings can be seen in the lungs due to causes like recurrent lung infections and sometimes due to cancer of the lungs. Also chronic infections like tuberculosis, sarcoidosis and due to occupational lung diseases like silicosis, asbestosis etc, can cause these markings. Tuberculosis typically affects the upper lobes of the lungs and can produce typical imaging patterns. Correlation with symptoms, blood tests and skins tests may be needed for a diagnosis and therapy.
Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
My father is a suffering with heart problem. before one month he is doing a X-ray of chest which is referred by a heart specialist. When reports come I have seen in the reports that :
1. Both domes of diaphragm are normal in position and contour.
2. Both costophrenic angles are clear.
3. The cardiac size is within normal limits.
4. The hila and mediastinum are normal.
5. "Interstitial markings are prominent".***
6. Bony cage and soft tissue are unremarkable.
and impression is : " Rule out interstitial lung disease."
I am worried to see that report. Is he suffering from any major lung problem or any major lung disease???? Please any one help me out from this situation. Any opinion appreciated!
